When assessing the findings and recommendations of this report, the Department for International Development considered: the impartiality of the organisation writing the report; the research methods used and; the existence of clear evidence to support the conclusions in the report. DFID also cross-checked the findings with other international reports to assess whether the evidence, and resulting conclusions, were comparable. Where findings differed from other organisations we assessed whether this was based on credible evidence.
